It's Madness
« on: March 18, 2024, 11:28:09 AM »
As pumped as I am about winning the SEC Tourney, I'm equally pissed about the seeding and placement for March Madness.

Looking at two final regular season polls, USA Today and ESPN, Auburn finished 7th in both. 

The SEC put 8 teams in the tournament.  Auburn has wins over Texas A&M, Mississippi State (2), Alabama, South Carolina (2) and Florida. While these teams didn't have great seasons, Auburn has OOC wins over Notre Dame, Virginia Tech, Indiana and USC. 

Auburn finished 27-7, same record as #1 seed North Carolina, and 26 of those wins came by double digits.

The reward for that is a 4 seed and a trip across the country to play in the same bracket as the #1 overall seed, UConn.

Every year, you have to scratch your head over some of the things the committee does. Why are regions and fans not taken into account. Yesterday, the Nashville arena was 90% Auburn fans.  We travel.  But Spokane, Washington???

Lord Bruce said I guess we're being punished for being placed in Birmingham last year.  Well, why wouldn't you try and keep most southeast teams in that area?  Nobody in Spokane gives two flippity blips about Auburn and Yale.

My doctor told me I needed to stop masturbating.  I asked him why, and he said, "because I'm trying to examine you."

And how the hell does Bama finish 21-11, lose 4 of their last 6 games, and get a 4 seed as well?

I guess the folks saying that the conference tournaments don't fucking matter for the top 16-20 teams are right.  The seeding makes me think the committee thought we'd get beat by UT, who would go one to meet UK in the final.  Feels like all they did was swap Houston with UCONN, and then move UT down a spot.

Five statements of WISDOM
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friends, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

John Eye was on the opening segment of Finebaum today. He thinks they're done with losing for the year.  Said, they just decided to win the rest of their games.

Sounds like a pretty straightforward plan.
